Gladness on Sunday

A lot of people get what I call “Sunday-itis” on Sunday mornings. Do you know what Sunday-itis is? It attacks the victim shortly before breakfast on Sunday morning. It is accompanied by a feeling of weakness and lethargy. Sometimes the victim has a slight headache which is aggravated by the ringing of the church bells in the community. But the disease is of short duration, usually disappearing about noon, when the victim is able to eat a full dinner and play golf in the afternoon. But the symptoms usually appear again about 7:30 Sunday evening, and then disappear until the next Sunday morning.

Why is church so important? Here are 4 reasons.

Prayer for the day

May I always have the gladness that David had, as each Sunday I prepare to worship You in Your house, heavenly Father.

    Thank you Father for all You have done for me. You know my struggles, and I know You will continue to raise me up out of my disparity​ and help me with my finances. It is so hard at 68 years old to still be struggling. I want to give up but God always carries me while I struggle. Jesus is my rock. I am not a person without His forgiveness. Please pray for me to stay strong and keep my faith when I feel like the world is crumbling around me. Thank you and may God always bless you.

    Brother Graham, my deceased husband was a follower of yours since the early ’50’s when you were in Nashville. He was dedicated from that point on (he was 9 years old) to give to the Boy’s Town every month. He also decided at this age to become a doctor, and he did. Was a general practitioner for 40 years before his death in 2000. What a influence you have made on God’s people. I feel so honored to be able to write you and say, “Thank you.” So many blessings have come from your revivals. So glad that Franklin has taken over your ministry work. He is a fine man of God. I will always support him and his work. Thank you.

    Sadly, too many people of every denomination feel as though they paid their dues (so to speak) just because they attended church on the Sabbath. As soon as they leave they feel they can do whatever they like, until next Sunday morning. Although we are all sinners, it is essential to try our very best, every single day, to honour and give God the respect and praise he so richly deserves. Can you imagine how devastating it would be if God only cared about and watched over us two hours a week?

    Lord, we praise your everlasting love and faithfulness! You protect and guide us, and we trust you with our lives. PRAISE THE LORD! Amen.
